CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with nice malty sweetness and doughy yeast with a touch of clove before a slightly drier and smooth finish. True to style and enjoyable.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Live rate. Bottle from Margaritaville, The Strip, NV, drank at The New Penguin, LE10. Warm orange gold with a fine slim cap. Nose of peppery Belgian esters and parsley hop. Decent enough MOR Belgian flavour with wine gum, white pepper, banana and tomato juice hits. Authentic and pretty tasty.

crossovert (6945) - Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2012
12 oz bottle. Bottled 01/04/12. It pours a brilliant clear gold, one of the clearest most pure golden-hued beers I have ever seen. The head is foamy and white and leaves some nice lacing. The smell is okay. Huge esters but honestly this almost just smells like an adjunct lager without the corn. It has that sourness to it that isn’t "sour" but that tart AAL scent. The flavor is flowery and yeasty. It has a decent sweetness, some metallic flavors, and basic grain flavors. Not too bitter. It is just really plain, there is nothing that distinguishes it besides its gorgeous appearance. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-22-2012 22:23:38

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Courtesy of douglas88. A Belgian Pale Ale, eh? Let’s see. It pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma emits cloves, grains, banana, yeast, spice, a touch of grapefruit and coriander. The taste is an even balanced mix of cloves, yeasty spice, banana, sweet tangelo, faint grapefruit, ripe green apples and a light coriander note. Into the finish it dries up a bit while grainy malt notes come to the surface. Well executed and refreshing brew.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Lightly hazy blonde, estery yeasty aroma, a little sweaty. Rustic yeast guides the palate, sweet pale grains, a little marzipan. Not bad.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Public House in the Venetian. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, apples, grapes, apricot, candi sugar, grass, and straw. Flavor of straw, apples, grapes, wheat, grass, bready malts, and a metallic note late. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts juicy and ends dry and metallic. Odd beer.
